“Luckily there are no injuries to either driver.”

A spokesman for Highways England said: “There is minimal disruption as it is just lane one which is closed and recovery is taking place now.

“The road will also need to be cleared as there is some fluid on road.
“We hope to have everything cleared by 1.30pm.”
